Wizkid made a recent appearance on BBC with BBC host Komla Dumor. While there, he answered numerous questions including why Nigerian musicians seem to be so caught up with singing/rapping about wealth, women and material things.
My favorite thing about Wizkid is his laughter. I love when he laughs. It usually makes me laugh. It is infectious.
Watch a snippet of the interview below.
“His name is Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun. But in nightclubs, on radio stations and music channels across Africa, the name he is known by is Wizkid. The 22-year-old singer-songwriter has quickly become one of Nigeria’s hottest musicians.
He recently signed up to the Konvict label owned by US-Senegalese superstar Akon. But it was not always like that. He started singing in church at the age of 11. At the time, his parents had very different plans for him.
When he visited BBC Africa’s studios in London earlier this week, Komla Dumor asked him how his family has reacted to his success.”
